C&p ?s Scheduled Finally After Waiting 2 Years


KennyJ

Question

Well finally been scheduled for C&Ps after nearly two years after filing secondary claims. Now they scheduled me for 4 exams next Thursday, which is great but they scheduled a last one six weeks later in August. Go figure? I have a couple ?s first since I am already 20% and say they grant me ratings on some of the exams so as I know sometimes when adding VA math the % stays the same . If the % percentage stays the same if say a 10% percent is added will I still get the 10% retro pay ? Also if the first 4 exams are decided before the last one 6 weeks later will they wait till after the last C&P before granting anything? I am just curious about the process I guess. I hope someone can be of assistance. I also have 2 appeals from 2 years ago that has to be decided.

Using the VA math calculator, if you get an increase and that increase would put you in another percentage rating, then you would then get back pay to the date you filed the claim. If say they only give you another 10% and that does not increase your overall percentage, then there is no increase in compensation, therefore, no backpay.

My husband had both new claims in process and also several BVA remands. We were told that before they could process the BVA remands that they had to finish up any new claims and decide those. This proved to be correct for us. The new claims were decided and any backpay sent to us. Then they went to the BVA remands and decided those and sent any backpay to us. We were told that before any BVA remands were decided, there could be no outstanding new claims in process.

As far as deciding your claims, a lot depends on whether these are RO appeals or BVA remands as far as to when each gets decided. If everything is still at the RO level, they could either decide some of them and send you a decision on those or they could wait until they decide all of them before they make a decision. I would say that if they decide on at least some of them, they would go ahead and send you a decision on those. But, then again, who knows for sure.

I'm not sure which state you are in, but waiting this long for a C & P exam sounds like an awfully long time. My husband would generally get a C & P scheduled within a much shorter period than this. I have heard from others that once you get your C & P exam that it usually is not that much longer after that that you get a decision. But again, all RO's are different.

Not sure if any of this helped, but this has been our experience. Maybe there are others that can give you more information based on what they have experienced.

I am rated 10% for pes cavus (high arches). 20% for low back strain and 10% for tinnitus. I appealed the rating on the back strain and reopened claim for allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctive and it has been at the rater since Jan. 05. I have since filed for Sleep Apnea due to deviated nasal septum and not being able to breathe through my nose which is documented in my SMRs. I have since filed for bad knees and hips and some other ailments as secondary to my feet and back and I have asked for a DRO hearing.

Sometime back I ask for a monthly increase for my dependent wife as she need the aid and attendence of another person for her daily living and I sent in a report for the doctors' office and just a couple of weeks ago another statement on a prescription pad from her doctor and they sent me a letter today wanting me to show why I need aid and attendence, Needless to say it is for my wife not me that need the aid and attendence.

I also got an appointment for July 27th, for a C&P exam. One for RADR (Routine X-Ray and the other one for CP Ortho Sabo.....What does Sabo mean? Anyone!

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
